Open-end mutual funds

Open-end funds issue new shares when an investor buys in, and redeem existing shares when an investor sells, usually on a daily basis. The price at which a fund redeems and sells the shares is based on the net asset value of the fund’s portfolio expressed on a per share basis. Investors generally buy and sell open-end mutual funds by trading with the mutual fund.
